Best Jars

When I first saw these jars I had to have them! The look very elegant and the price point was amazing! I only ordered one case to see how they would sell and my customers loved them! I will be slowly transiting my complete line to these vessels! Only issue I have is CS should produce a package for them.

I received these glasses today and I have some concerns. First it is a beautiful glass but i noticed that the inside is rounded on the bottom . It is not a even roundedness in the last inch of the glass. Im not talking about the glass base layer but the inside. I will keep as i am using to test and give away but now I'm back to the drawing board. Maybe its due to my lack of knowledge in container language (tumbler). Maybe this is a quality of the jar but I wanted straight sides to the bottom of the glass. giving 4 stars because they are pretty. lol

High Expectations but disappointed

So I was really excited about these Tumblers because I love the look and size, pretty much everything, but it has been a real struggle to wick this I use 6006 and according CS wick guide I am supposed to use a Eco 8 that was a big fail. That wick in this container with that wax left too much on the sides( did not create a even melt pool) even after 3 burns 4 hours each I used CS FO at 9 %. So I tried Eco 10 this is also not burning well. I tried wood wicks which I am having better luck with but still after testing at least 3 wood wicks different sizes and thicknesses I still haven't got a burn that I am satisfied with. I went to my FB candle group and got some expert feedback that Eco wicks notoriously do not work well with 6006 wax and that zinc wicks (which I didn't see on your website) HTP and 700 series wicks work better in 6006 wax. I have been making candles probably 3 years I use 6006 and wood wicks I was trying to switch over to a cloth wick and use this container for my fall collection but I may have to go back to what I know Aura type container and wood wicks. I'm super frustrated because I would love to order for CS since I love your fragrances and the 6006 wax itself but I'm struggling with your wicks and containers and on limited time as my fall collection is supposed to be released next week :(

Beautiful vessels!

Any suggestions on packaging? I’m thinking a shipper with padding but I want to order the correct size. The flush packaging isn’t configured to this guy yet.

Perfect glass!

The glass is straight and smooth so it’s easy to label. The heavy crystal glass bottom makes your candles look more high end. They are one of my all tie favorites that I used to buy elsewhere but now candlescience has them! Great jar you can’t go wrong.

I have always loved these!

Love these beautiful glasses! I used to purchase them elsewhere for special events and private stash. They are really smooth and straight and with the heavy glass bottom it makes them look expensive. They are super easy to wick and the labels go on beautifully with the smooth glass. Try them you will love them! I used to use the copper lids on them as they used to fit perfectly so I assume they still do?
